SNES PlayStation Physical form

The SNES PlayStation in physical form

Some big news has hit the press today. If reports are believed to be true, the famous original Sony SNES PlayStation has been found in physical form. According to a reddit post, someone posted images of the console that never happened due to the famous deal between Sony and Nintendo never working out. The poster of the console said the following statement regarding the discovery of the SNES PlayStation:

“My dad worked for a company, apparently one of the guys he used to work with, I think his name was Olaf, used to work at Nintendo and when my dads company went bankrupt, my dad found it in a box of “junk” he was supposed to throw out.”

We do not know yet if the console can be powered up, turned on, or even used at this point, but if this is all true, it is great to see the console in physical form. For years, it seemed the SNES PlayStation was believed to have only been in the design phase before Nintendo decided to break off their contract with Sony. We have images of the console for everyone to view.

    I call bullshit on any story that begins with “my dad worked for so and so…”

  • Infophile

    It’s like peering into an alternate universe… Perhaps someone over there is peering at our Sony Playstation and marveling at it.

    I hope it ends up on eBay

    wrong, sony was working on the Super Nintendo CD add-on. Nintendo broke ties with sony to develop the Nintendo 64. Sony held most of the patents for the cd add-on so they begun development on their own console, the PlayStation. There was never a nintendo PlayStation.
